I'm comfortable with it because I don't need to be morally aligned with everything I watch, read or listen to. Andre Young may think that Bitches Ain't Shit (as is his right), but I certainly do not. This doesn't change the fact that the song is fucking fantastic.
It would be unreasonable to demand perfect moral agreement, but there's a line somewhere, right? If it were a white artist chanting, "N*****s ain't shit," would you be endorsing it enthusiastically as one of the all time great hooks? I don't need to be morally aligned with my music. I'd just rather not be disgusted by it.
